They complain about paying $2.13 an hour? Abolish tips and pay your people a decent wage, it's ridiculous.

Not uninformed, but I misspoke for a moment. Why do you dems have to insult the individual instead of responding to the issues being discussed? Is it a strategy to bolster what you feel is an insecure argument on your part?
You misspeak a lot. Its because you are uninformed.

Days after he declared that he wants to put "more teachers" in schools, Mitt Romney criticized President Barack Obama's plan to do just that."

[President Obama] wants to hire more government workers," Romney said. "He says we need more fireman, more policeman, more teachers. Did he not get the message of Wisconsin? The American people did. It's time for us to cut back on government and help the American people."

Right. It'll "help the American people" just as soon as we allow more layoffs of school teachers and first responders. Why will the economy benefit when these workers are unemployed? Romney never got around to explaining that, but the larger point was hard to miss: the president believes the country would benefit from fewer teacher layoffs; Romney believes the opposite.

At least, that's the way it seemed. Four months later, in last week's debate, President Obama brought this up, noting, "Governor Romney doesn't think we need more teachers. I do."

The Republican responded, "I reject the idea that I don't believe in great teachers or more teachers." In other words, Romney no longer seems to agree with what he said in June.

That is, until yesterday, when Romney sat down with the editors of the Des Moines Register. As Sam Stein noted, the former governor seemed to revert back to his original stance, arguing, "He wants to hire more school teachers. We all like school teachers. It's a wonderful thing. Typically, school teachers are hired by states and localities, not by the federal government. But hiring school teachers is not going to raise the growth of the U.S. economy over the next three-to-four years."

LOL.

This should tell you he must have a list.
Where is that list?
Mitt Romney, as he puffs out his chest: "I"m all for education" as he threatens to cut funding to the most prolific educational TV show ever.
education is a local government responsibility...the country would be better off without meddling from the federal government.....so terminate the Department of Education....

any responsible budget plan, regardless of party, needs to bring entitlement programs and government pensions under control.....

Even with tips, those waiters probably only make $200 a week, they could never afford health insurance.
I say, boycott Darden Restaurants ( I don't go to them anyway), let him go down. The government and the customers have been subsidizing his businesses.
They need to unionize.
when you fools passed Obamacare, you put millions of people out of work...or on part-time status.....live with your f*ck-up.....

unionize the restaurants and they will go out of business....

and the food isn't bad for those who can't afford your high-priced restaurants....

but President Romney will solve the problem...

Lighten up Lily, what you're hearing from Peppy and others here is bullshyte. While Darden is the largest national it's no different from the others, Outback, Chili's etc.

Clarence Otis, Dardens chief is black and once had lunch with Obama and also has adopted healthy eating menus at Olive Garden, BFD it's a (R) outfit as is Outback and all the others including Hooters.

The pay ($2.13 in FL) varies from state to state as do the requirements for workers comp and other mandates.

Darden also employ's designers, construction managers, and scads of other professionals, Darden is currently creating the largest lobster farm on the planet in Malaysia and owns the bulk of the Alaskan crab intake seen on The Deadliest Catch and similar shows.

It's not all about servers and bartenders any more than GM is about bolting fenders on autos.
